Al Morse and Gene Rogers rob the Ross Industries payroll at gunpoint. When Morse is shot by a guard, Rogers leaves him behind and escapes in a stolen van. Following a prearranged plan, Rogers abandons the van and hides in the basement of Ben and Flo Durfee's diner. Dan Mathews and Sergeant Johnson investigate the robbery and get a description of Rogers from his wounded partner. Flo Durfee (who planned the robbery) senses that Rogers may become a liability, so she kills him in cold blood, drags his body upstairs, and tells the Highway Patrol that she has killed an "intruder" in self defense. Dan and Sergeant Johnson respond and quickly find several holes in her story. Flo senses that her treacherous plans have gone awry, so she abandons Ben, forces her way out of the diner at gunpoint, and attempts to escape in Dan's Highway Patrol car. Sergeant Johnson subdues Ben, enabling Dan to engage Flo in a brief but intense gun battle.- Written by Sam Spear
